Here’s a wacky track made with some of the presets I recently uploaded...
I’ve been following the mixing thread and I think the idea of letting people play around with others tracks sounds interesting. Here’s my track, have fun with it…
Nice variety of tones and sounds you made there... Part of your SubSynth set you gave us right? Good work on this demo.
Lots of ideas in there! nice sounds too. Will have a look at the Caustic file, thank you for sharing.
3 of the presets I used in the song can be found in the pack I uploaded. The only remarkable thing about this song is how I use those presets, just because the word ‘Bass’ is in the name of a preset doesn’t mean it cant be used as a lead instrument and so on. Guess you could call it ‘Builders style Subsynth’, I would like to encourage people to test new ways of doing things. In the end there is no right or wrong, only different ways to reach the same goal.
The pack I uploaded contains Bass, Brass, Pads, Lead and Percussive sounds. It should be enough for anyone to get started on subsynth. The sounds are rather synthetic and I got the impression that’s what people want, maybe I’ll upload more realistic sounds to if there are enough interest.
I will take a look at your 'Caustic Sessions' to, sound like a lot of fun
A little mix here : https://sites.google.com/site/thecausticsessions/sessions Hope you like it.
Some observations: you have some scales incoherences between parts: organ plays a major chord and the rest playing minor. And two basslines fighting in the same area. (and one with a muddy reverb;-)
You managed to rid most of that annoying DC-offset caused by the BL-synth with low-cut and compressor, Distortion + filter LFO + Phaser is a really bad combination but it sounds good. I also liked the ParaEQ on the beatbox cutting some of the Mid-Low frequencies allowing the drums to come forth even more. I like your mix better than mine, I can easily see this ‘Mixing Help’ thing grow and I’m looking forward to see more collaboration’s like this.
Ahh! Now I see what you mean with the major chord. The thing is that everything was major when I started the track and then I changed my mind, the organ somehow slipped trough probably because of the low level . I’ll have to change that and probably raise one of the basses one octave.
Is it ok by you if I upload your version (with those changes) to soundcloud?
No problem to publish it, happy if you like the mix.
Here's the new version, I did some final polish but most of the mix is your work
and here's the caustic file with the changes
One thing I forgot to tell you about the modifcations I made (but maybe you've seen it). On your drums pattern, I noticed that your velocities were all the same. I have modified only one pattern, thinking that maybe you made it by choice. But I think you should try to use this parameter to add more "life" and groove to your drums sequence.
Hope it will help you for other mixes.
